Chris is the founder of FollowUp.cc, which enables you to set reminders on emails you send, snooze the emails you have for later and schedule tasks right from your email. It’s something that every inbox needs these days, here are his good things.
Good things to read.
Antifragile by Nassim Taleb. Really contrarian and interesting book about the way the world works and how wealth is created from massive shifts.
The Einstein Factor by Richard Poe. Ways to better your brain through different techniques. Image Streaming is amazing on what it does for cognition and vocabulary.
Paranoia by Joseph Finder. A fun corporate espionage thriller, great summer read and the movie is coming out in August with Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman.
Good things to watch.
Shark Tank (TV). Definitely gives a semi-realistic view into the dynamics of talking to an investor but most of all is inspiring to see people’s ideas, their execution, and their success
In Time (Movie). Certainly no oscar winner, but a really interesting movie about time being the currency for material goods and life itself
Can We Eat to Starve Cancer (online). Really interesting research on how food protects us from disease, worth the watch for anyone who’s ever wondered if their diet matters
Good things to use.
FollowUp.cc. I’m definitely not shy to suggest my own service because I literally couldn’t function without it, and my inbox would be a mess. I set about 250-350 reminders per month and there are customers who use it way more than that. It’s basically the missing piece of every email system.
Rapportive.com. The best plugin for Gmail to see who you’re emailing and their recent social updates
F.lux. This app removes the blue light from your laptop/monitor to mimic the sun setting. We spend too much time on electronics at night and this affects a lot of people’s circadian rhythms, so it’s a great app to automatically solve that problem as we continue to use our gadgets at night!
